TRAGEDY: Sudden Petirah of 9 Year Old Eliyahu Eliezer Raitzik Z”L

candleBARUCH DAYAN HA’EMES: It’s with much sadness we report the sudden Petirah of 9 year old Eliyahu Eliezer Raitzik Z”L, son of Reb Shabsi. Hatzolah rushed to the boy’s Yeshivah Apartments home at about 7:30 AM this morning when he failed to wake up, and upon arrival found the boy unresponsive.

Resuscitation efforts by Hatzolah Paramedics were unfortunately unsuccessful.

The boy was transported to Kimball Medical Center where he was pronounced. The Niftar was then taken for a virtual autopsy.

Z”L was a 4th grade Talmid in Yeshivah Toras Aharon.

The Levaya will be taking place at 3:30 PM this afternoon at the Bais Medrash Hayashon BMG. The Kevurah will take place in Lakewood.

Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.

  1. No one knows why all this is happening…We all DO know that it IS very scary. We also know that the Chofetz Chaim zt”l teaches us what working on Lashon Harah can do for every part of our lives. It might be a good place to start. I am being mekabel to improve in matters of speech and talking of other people in a very significant way. Anyone ready to join??

  2. Lets all focus on positive. lets all be there for each other. Lets be giving. Those making decision in the yshiva system should slow down w/ their kovio & the bid on kesef, so much to work on. Sad!
